    Thatís What Friends are For

They say you canít pick your relations
But a wide choice to you extends,
Though there be folk from many nations
You are free to pick your friends.

Some times when you are feeling down
And really saddened to the core,
A friend will ease away the frown,
Well thatís what friends are for.

To lose a loved one in some accident
Is a tragic wound beyond belief,
But good friends are never hesitant
To help you share your tragic grief.

Sharing troubles make you wise,
You have a lesser cross to bear,
When you can open up your eyes
And see a good friend standing there.

You might be lying sick in bed
And with your misfortune reconcile,
When your day is brightened up instead
By a friendís quick happy smile.

Strong friendships like a hidden chain
That binds good friends together,
Never look on mateship with disdain
For true friends are friends forever

So if relatives are few and far between
And lonely feelings you canít ignore
Then call on a friend to intervene
For thatís what friends are for.

Howdy, friend!

A good friend draws good friends! ~ and you, m'dear Aussie Man, undoubtedly, would make the best of friends and would draw the best of friends!

To love and friendships!

Yes, dear Lindsay, your beautiful wise words convey the core of friendship's meaning very efficiently.

What would we do without friends indeed, blessed be all the friends of the world!


Love,

I thought, by the title, this might be about golf.  Then I read a very nice piece.
